Well I have a pretty modest set-up at home - it's all in my sig - NFB-12 or NFB-12 to an LD MKIV.  Nothing really fancy.  The great thing about the HD700 though is how easy it is to drive.  I was away for the weekend to visit family, and took my uDac3 and laptop - but in the end used them mostly straight out of my iPhone4.  Sounded great and I didn't feel I was missing anything.


Your E17 should be fine.  I wouldn't sweat it.  Spend the money you save on music - that's where I get the most enjoyment ;)
